I was really taken by aback when I listened to an interview of a woman named Bing Sardinia (not sure of the name. It sounded like it) who presumably works for VP President Leni Robredo's defense team.
At the beginning of the interview, the name of former President Benigno Aquino III's appointee Justice Marvic Leonen came up. According to Bing Sardinia, Leonen said that the result of the Vice-President and the President cannot be surgically removed or separated because it comes from only one certificate of the canvas.
That really got my interest, so I listened to the interview carefully and it dawned on me that they appear to be trying to create a crisis of leadership or perhaps a constitutional crisis by using Bong Bong Marcos.
Their logic works like this. If the votes of Leni are wrong, then, therefore, Duterte's votes are wrong too. This means that the Vice President's position becomes vacant. And if the Vice President's position becomes vacant then so too should the President's because the result came from the same certificate of the canvas.
Noteworthy is that based on what Sardinia said, Justice Leonen who dissented the Martial Proclamation seems to be leading into toward that argument when he allegedly said that "the result of the Vice-President and the President cannot be surgically removed or separated because it comes from only one certificate of the canvas."
What they seem to say is that if Leni Robredo is a fake Vice-President then Rody Duterte is a fake President too. If that is what they are saying then that is the height of absurdity.
